Workspace Wednesday...

with Allison of Fraske Designs

My workspace varies based on what I am making. Usually it is just me and my computer, but I recently got my first Gocco printer, so my workspace ended up on my kitchen table for my first run.
Since I am new to this medium, I decided to start simple and made a master print of my favorite quote (“I feel good, I fee great, I feel wonderful”) from my favorite movie (What About Bob?). To make my master screen, I chose a font and laid out the text in Illustrator. Since the Gocco will only burn a screen from a carbon based image, I printed my image in gray and outlined it by hand with a black carbon pen. A photo copy would work, too.I followed the steps in the manual and then went crazy testing the image on a bunch of different card stock that I had. I chose to use the metallic gold ink that came with my Gocco printer kit and ended up with a variety of results. I think my favorites are the gold on robins egg blue stock with a coordinating chocolate brown envelope. You will see these soon in my Etsy shop!


  1. Those are great Allison! I've been contemplating getting a Gocco...was it hard to obtain? I heard they were tough to find?

  2. oh i found it on ebay and i think you can also get them from some sellers on etsy like this one:

    mine took a while to arrive but otherwise it was an easy transaction! i am very pleased.
